§ As many as nine movie clips from WATCHMEN are now online, and we haven’t watched them (we want it to be pure), but according to some, they have not been as instantly life-changing, dick-stiffening, epiphany-inducing, second-coming revealing, cancer-curing, and war-ending as people hoped. Maybe we will watch ’em after all and judge for ourselves.
§ The Flickr stream of SCOTT PILGRIM director Edgar Wright continues to reveal the cast:
Michael Cera as Scott.
Chris Evans as Lucas Lee, the second evil ex boyfriend.
Mystery cast member? Although the eyebrow looks a bit like Brandon Routh as Todd Ingram, some believe it to be the still-rumoured Jason Schwartzman as 7th boyfriend Gideon Gordon Graves, although that is total rumor, totally unverified, as Splash Page explains.
§ Mickey Rourke is not only recovering from the death of his beloved chihuahua, but he’s now playing hardball with Marvel over Iron Man 2, NY Mag’s Vulture reports:
But so what if ICM’s David Unger doesn’t look good in a dress — at least he’s battling Marvel for a bigger paycheck for Rourke for his rumored role as a villain in Iron Man 2, right? “Right now, we’re not doing Iron Man 2,” Rourke told us grimly.
He did have some good news, though. Following the widespread disappointment over his canceled appearance at the upcoming WrestleMania 25, Rourke told us he’ll still be there, just not in the ring: “We’re gonna go in support. Vince McMahon, Roddy Piper, and Rick Flair have been such a part of the movie … So whatever support I can give back to all those people from WWE, I’m gonna do that.”
